Pregnancy photography has become increasingly common over the last few years. Anyone who has seen the 1991 Vanity Fair cover featuring a nude Demi Moore seven months pregnant knows that pregnancy photography can be both daring and beautiful. Moore's posing was controversial and provocative at the time, but in the decade since it has paved the way for more women to feel comfortable and even sexy while pregnant, and many choose to capture the image on film.

If you are interested in pregnancy photography, being comfortable with the photographer is probably the most important aspect of getting the photographs you want. While this is something you can ultimately determine for yourself only by meeting a potential artist, the Internet can certainly provide some assistance. Generally, the photographer's website and portfolio will also include client feedback, and you can look for remarks relevant to pregnancy photography.

Choosing a Location for Pregnancy Photography

Also adding to your comfort should be a choice of location. You may choose to have your pictures taken in the artist's studio, if you are comfortable with that. If you would like to have the pictures taken in your own home, however, a good photographer will be able to bring in whatever equipment and decorative pieces are needed, and you can have the security of being in your own space and having a partner there with you if you want.

The right photographer will also be able to take the photographs you want. Whether you want to recreate another famous image, have simple pictures taken, or get creative with fabrics, drapes, or props, your photographer is there to give ideas when you need them or follow yours if you know what you want. If you are considering having pictures taken while pregnant, with the right photographer you are sure to end up with lovely pictures that make you feel beautiful and proud.
